‘No wrong door’ innovation programme: Evaluation

The Department for Education (DfE) has published an evaluation of the ‘No wrong door’ (NWD) programme which aimed to improve accommodation, education, employment and training (EET) support for young people who are in care or on the edge of care. Findings include: evidence to suggest that NWD is contributing to young people remaining out of the care system; evidence of a reduction in criminal activity for young people that were supported by the NWD innovation; cessation and reduction in substance use for 32% of the NWD cohort; incidents of NWD young people going missing have halved (from 503 incidents to 253) since the year prior to NWD commencing.
